Although my hotel room view was disappointing the staff were friendly and always happy to help. Nothing was to much trouble. The location was amazing and a stone throw away from Union square. Would go back in a heart beat.

This hotel is less then a minutes walk to Union Square and close to all the amazing shopping in San Francisco. The rooms are spacious and offer a good view if in the Premier rooms. The gym was well equipped and pools temperature was warm for winter.

Extraordinary location... closed to Union square, public parking (Union - 36 a day - hotel is 47 plus taxes), Powell's cable car stop and everything else in Union Square. We got a room on 5th, but prior to that the front desk attendent wasn't excited to be there...so it makes a bad first impression! Besides that, rooms noise (not from... More

Since this was my first hotel in SF I can not compare it, but based on my standards, this was average at best. Location is great, no doubt. Arrived from Airport directly with BART for $8.6 and just a really short stroll from the Powell station was the Hotel. Room was spacious, so so clean (you could see, that some... More

This hotel was fantastic. We had 8 of us staying and they looked after us all so very well. We were all upgraded to wonderful rooms with special deliveries!

I had read reviews that said the location was great but the hotel was a little shabby but happy to say that the section we stayed in wasn't run down at all (nor do I think the older section was...certainly not on the main floor). You do want a balcony versus a pool view. The breakfast that came with the... More

We stayed here 3 nights. Two blocks from Union Square. You can catch any type of transportation quickly. The Hotel service was great & everyone was helpful & very friendly. I would definitely recommend The Handlery. Nice room. HC access was great too! We loved it here & we'll come back!

It is nice that you can park your car 'in' the hotel. This way you won't have any stress about parking your car. The room was modern and had a good shape, only our view was not so great. The bathroom was long and narrow but okay for two people. It is an old hotel, because it feels like a... More
